Raw Vegan Chocolate Cinnamon Mousse
by The Blender Girl
This delectable raw vegan chocolate cinnamon mousse is SO easy, and epitomizes the “blend and chow in under 5 minutes” philosophy that I am so fond of. Just throw all the ingredients in your blender and puree until smooth. Adjust the flavourings to your taste. Then chill and devour. How easy is that? This is a fantastic beacon of hope for any chocolate mousse lover looking for an allergy-friendly alternative. This recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free and soy-free. But definitely not taste free! YUM!
- 4 ripe organic avocados - halved, pit removed and discarded, flesh scooped out

- 3/4 - 1 cup of raw agave nectar to taste
- 3 Tbsp raw almond butter OR 1/4 cup coconut cream
- 2 Tbsp natural vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
